Strips of Papers In A Similar Shade

Hello everyone!  Audrey here to share a layout with the new "Pure Bliss" collection.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the prints and colors in this line.  Although the colors are a bit on the pastel side, they still worked perfectly for this photo of our family in the fall.

I cut and distsressed some strips of papers of a similar shade and then stitched them to create a mat for my photo.  I used some more strips on the bottom left of the page and an area to ground my title.  I stitched around the photo to create a frame.

I used a heart stencil and the crossword paper, and brushed with some watered down blue paint.  Then I cut the hearts out and outlined them with a black pen.  I fussy cut some flowers and come circles and layered them across the page.  For my journaling, I just wrote on some strips of paper and scattered them around the page.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
